“There will be no division of
party or aeotion or race or na

one among us,” the x*e®'dettt
said, “who does not have a stake
in the outcome of the ^ort in
which we are now engaged. ’ ’
“There newr has been, there
isn’t now, and there neve^ will

“The world has no use for
any nation which, because of
its size or military might, as
serts the right to goose step to
world power over other nations
or other races. We believe that

the fact that Mercy will lose its

proved institution and said that
merger would make t^ new
medical center just a “colored
bran^” of the tlniversity of
Pennsylvania.
The result was a vote of H-3
in favor of not merging. The
move to merge the two lo(^l in
stitutions had been in the Air
for years and under definite
conc^demtion for two ye*^.

The country is ^f® so long-

It might be a good idea for
somebody to get up a poll to
